Legislature 2000

The issues are volatile; the players unpredictable; the atmosphere highly charged. The fight over Gov. Jeb Bush's One Florida plan, which would end race, ethnic and sex-based preferences in university admissions and state contracts, is taking place mostly along racial lines. Then there are term limits: a big chunk of the Legislature has to leave office after this session. Will they turn maverick? Expect lots of wrangling over health care and transportation. With 3,000 lobbyists in residence, though, plenty more issues will surface. It may get ugly. It certainly will be interesting.
